EGX 2019’s EU Regional Open Premier tournament was the last Capcom Pro Tour event of the year for Europe.
The event was stacked with the best players from the European region, along with some pros from Southeast Asia who decided to join.
In case you missed it, here are the best highlights and most memorable moments from the open tournament.
AD Terminal vs Nemo (Pools)
Samuel “AD Terminal” M was able to land this sick Urien juggle combo on Naoki “Nemo” Nemoto.
JesterPower vs Sako (Pools)
One of the biggest upsets of the tournament took place in Pools when hometown hero, Jermaine “JesterPower” Landell, defeated Japanese FGC god, Naoto “Sako” Sako.
TKR vs Hurricane (Pools)
Ilker “TKR” Dovanci was able to earn one of the best comebacks of the tournament against Claude “Hurricane” Diboti in pools.
The4Phillz vs Phenom (Pools)
Kim “The4Phillz” Badiabio came close to upsetting tournament runner-up, Arman “Phenom” Hanjani using Falke in pools.
K-Brad vs Oil King (Pools)
Kenneth “K-Brad” Bradley pulled off this incredible “reverse perfect” comeback against Li-Wei “Oil King” Lin with basically no health left.
The Cool Kid93 vs Problem X (Pools)
We saw another incredible reverse perfect when Marcus “TheCoolKid93” Redmond took a round off Benjamin “Problem X” Simon.
NewType vs Takamura (Pools)
The European region had a few players representing different SFV characters we rarely see in tournaments. In this clip, Adel “NewType” Mohammad’s Blanka caught Houaid “Takamura” Rabie off-guard.
Mister Crimson vs Broski (Pools)
The event had multiple mirror matches throughout the day, but the most fascinating one was this Dhalsim mirror match between Nathan “Mister Crimson” Massol and Rob “Broski” L.
NL vs Itabashi Zangief (Top 32)
After a mistimed V-reversal from Hiromiki “Itabashi Zangief” Kumada, Sim “NL” Gun was able to get the knockdown that led to a Raging Demon finish.
Dogura vs Nemo (Top 16)
Ryo “Dogura” Nozaki showed off one of the smartest mixups of the tournament against Nemo. After getting the knockdown in the corner, he jumped towards the other side but faked the crossup and landed on the same side, letting him start up a new combo to finish the round.
Angry Bird vs Itabashi Zangief (Top 8)
Amjad “Angry Bird” Alshalabi is known for doing consecutive throw attempts against his opponents, but he might have outdone himself this time by landing six throws in one round against Itabashi Zangief.
Phenom vs Xian (Losers’ Final)
Kun Xian “Xian” Ho’s decision not to spend meter to finish off Phenom ended up costing him dearly as Phenom made an incredible comeback.
Big Bird vs Xian (Winners’ Final)
Big Bird’s toughest opponent all weekend was Xian. Their match in winners finals went down to the wire, with both players performing at their absolute best.
